The Little Prince

The Little Prince, Illustration: Lea Zupančič
The text, written by the adventurer, pilot and star observer Antoin de Saint-Exupéry, or rather a story about a little boy who realised that »what is essential, is invisible to the eye” was first staged in the Puppet Theatre by Edi Majaron in 1979. The performance marked an important milestone in the development of Slovenian puppet art, boasting a minimalist set design and puppets of abstract form, created by sculptor Peter Černe. In its new, modern reinterpretation by director Yulia Roschina the performance will obtain a form of a fairy tale musical, inspired by the black and white imaginary pictures by painter and illustrator Alenka Sottler. Combining traditional and modern, bright and dark, abstract and realistic the young artist creates outstanding visuals, luring the viewer into the expanse of freedom and imagination. She weaves her landscapes with bundles of lines, letters, stamps and small sophisticated strokes, acting as fairy tale threads that help both children and adults to develop their visual sensibility.
Suggestive visual design will play with the expressive costumes, video projections and rich musical landscape of songs and sound atmospheres, created by Mitja Vrhovnik Smrekar. Quality and topical artistic team, as proven by many awards (Yulia Roschina – Best Director Award at the Borštnik's Meeting; Mitja Vrhovnik Smrekar and Alenka Sottler - the recipients of the Prešeren Fund Award; Matjaž Farič – the recipient of the Župančič Award …) will ensure an intense sensory experience of the Little Prince's story by thoroughly addressing the themes of freedom, solitude and friendship. One of the finest literary-philosophical visions will be thus subtly disclosing through all of its visual and puppet potential important observations about life and human nature.
Slovenian academic painter and illustrator Alenka Sotler is a recipient of numerous national and international awards, winner of the IBBY Honour List 2008 for her illustrations in the J. and E. Grimm's picture book Cinderella, nominee for the ALMA Award (2010) and Andersen Award (2012). Her bibliography in Cobbis comprises more than 80 titles.
